Haris “Harini” Lender (Kidding Around Yoga) is a certified Integral Yoga™ teacher at the 500 level. She has also been certified in Prenatal, Raja, Children’s and Stress Management.
Haris has traveled throughout the world, including climbing Mt. Kenya, living with the Masai Warriors, and completing a month long Outward Bound program.
She was the president of the Outing Club at her University, owned a Laundromat-Pub after college and has had two Yoga studios of her own! She lives in St. Pete with her husband and four kids and has also raised: Dog’s, Ferrets, Ducks, Hamsters, Birds, and more. Haris spends much of her hard earned vacation time in her lovely Yurt in Yogaville.
Although she didn’t know it at the time, Haris has spent her lifetime preparing to create this imaginative style of Yoga for kids. Growing up in the Lender family it was a common occurence to be thrown into a skit for the family business that might have any of the kids dressed up as a penguin, sporting a plastic tushy, or singing along at a huge convention, or family reunion to a silly song written by either of her creative parents.
During her 11 years of running Camp Yogaville there were many opportunities to show off these skills. She wrote songs and skits, managed her counselors, teachers, and kitchen staff, and developed many more skills that would help her along the way to create Kidding Around Yoga.
Haris is extremely grateful to her teacher Swami Satchidananda, and to all of the Swami’s, her friends and teachers at Yogaville that have helped to guide her. To her parents who gave her this insanely creative ability to write songs and invent lots of fun activities for the kids, her husband who is right there by her side writing great yoga stories and songs with her….. and especially to her partner and friend Cassie Dixon who keeps her on her Yogi toes and loves kidding around as much as Haris.
